After releasing three bruising EPs, Pittsburgh’s Eternal Sleep finally deliver their first full-length recording, The Emptiness Of. Much like djent and the shoegaze resurgence, chugging, breakdown-heavy metallic hardcore has become a popular trend in extreme music in recent years. But like with all music trends, they slowly die out and those left purveying those styles who refuse to stagnate and continue to push forward will be the ones who will remain relevant. With this new LP, Eternal Sleep are shaping up to be one of those said bands. Though their initial releases were fairly straightforward, The Emptiness Of shows the band pushing the limits of the modern metallic hardcore style.
